Can Our Resource Specialists Help You or Someone You Know?

4-3-2009

Salt Lake CAP would like to make the public aware of a new but underutilized resource available to families in crisis.

The Salt Lake Community Action Program has a Resource Specialist in each of their five food pantries. The program has been available for six months but few people realize it is available. This is a new program designed to help people coming in to pick up three days of emergency food from the food pantries. If someone is eligible for emergency food they are likely eligible for other services but may not know they exist.

This is where the resource specialists come in. They will sit down with the family and see what other community services a family or individual can utilize to get them through tough times. The Resource Specialists assist people in filling out paperwork and navigating the process of qualifying for and receiving assistance.

We have Resource Specialists in our Magna, West Valley, Salt Lake City, Midvale and Murray food pantries. The locations of the food pantries can be found here:

In addition to the emergency food pantries Salt Lake CAP also has a food stamp calculator on their website.

*We currently have a job opening for a community resource specialist. Call Camille Bitton to apply 801-214-3159.
